a.k.a. Green Mint, Garden Mint
Like all mints this is a hardy,fragrant perennial with a vigorous,
not to say rampant, growth habit!
Best grown in a pot or container as left free-range
Mints will soon overpower most gardens.
Mints like a moist rich soil in at least partial shade
as they are prone to baking infull sun.
This variety grows to about 2ft (60 cm) in high
and is the most well known of all the Mints.
It has bright green, hairless, 'spearhead' shaped leaves,
and long spikes of lilac flowers in the late Summer.
It is one of the classics for Mint Sauce
and for adding flavour to Peas, Carrots, Green Beans,
Parsnips, Beef, Fruit Juices, Fruit Salads,
Wine Cups and Teas.
Whilst it may not be the strongest in fragrance of the Mints,
it is one of the best for
holding its flavour under the effects of heat.
- Making it a firm favourite for the table!-.
